About the Owner

We are James and Amanda and live in England with our 2 dogs and 2 cats and have 5 adult children. We enjoyed our first holiday together in Kefalonia in 2007 and fell in love with this beautiful island immediately and married here in 2009. We have been very fortunate to aquire a small piece of this lovely island having bought Villa Theos in May 2014. We have made numerous improvements to the property and are very happy with the very positive feedback we've received from our guests. It's our wish that all those who stay at Villa Theos enjoy a very special holiday and leave with lasting and happy memories of this island and their time in Lakithra.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous 2 weeks in the beautiful Villa Theos. For us, the holiday ticked ALL the boxes - a very well equipped and comfortable villa, immaculate private pool, idyllic peaceful location, within easy walking distance of good eating places & bars, most everyday needs available in the village, only 10 minutes to Argostoli and the airport (but no aircraft noise), the list goes on.........

We particularly enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts by the pool with its extensive views over the mountains & sea, and the several places to relax in either sun or shade at different times of the day. Also, if you have a sweet tooth like me don't miss the cake shop! My wife also highly recommends the Martinis in George's Bar.

There's not much we can add to previous reviews, and have no hesitation in highly recommending Villa Theos to future guests. Many thanks to Amanda & James for allowing us the use of their beautiful villa.

The perfect space for our stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Theos, and would like to extend our thanks to Amanda and James. The villa is well equipped, clean and welcoming. The house itself was perfect for us as two couples travelling together with two ensuite bedrooms and plenty of seating areas, inside and around the pool. The cleaning that was completed during our stay was to a high standard and the views from the balconies of the bedrooms was just beautiful... the perfect thing to wake up to! I would certainly consider returning.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Theos was simply not long enough, we had the most wonderful holiday. Everything was perfect, from the well appointed, beautifully maintained and spacious villa to Kefalonia itself. The villa is in a great location in the village of Lakithra with several restaurants, two bars, a mini market, bakery and cake shop. We ate at all of the restaurants and the food and service was excellent, particularly at the International Restaurant and Grill Restaurant where portions are huge and very reasonably priced. We loved Georges Bars for a cocktail on our way back to the villa. We had great days out to the beautiful Klismata beach, to the capital Argostoli where we saw the sea turtles and took the ferry to Lixouri. We had great days at the villa too relaxing by the pool and enjoying the sounds of the wildlife and church bells and nothing else! Everything about the villa is brilliant our teenagers enjoyed their holiday as much as we did and we will most definitely be back soon but for two weeks next time!

Fabulous villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in the excellent Villa Theos. Villa was spotless and comfortable with beautiful furnishings and everything you need for a great holiday.

Debbie was very helpful with any information we required, cleaning girls do a great job as does Keith keeping pool very clean.

Lakithra is a lovely village where you can walk to a few restaurants and a couple of bars. We enjoyed the International restaurant best. The small mini market has everything you require with lovely helpful staff, Lidel is only 5 minutes drive for any further supplies.

The whole island is beautiful and a car allows you to travel around the different towns and villages. Loved Argostoli which was a ten minute drive or taxi.

James and Amanda were very informative and helpful with all information and I would like to thank them for allowing us to stay in their gorgeous home with beautiful views. We will definitely return. Linda Gus Ellie & Harry.

It is so important to us that our guests at the villa have a great holiday and are as enamoured with the people and island of Kefalonia as we were on our first visit in 2006. We look forward to welcoming you in the future. Kindest regards, James & Amanda

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Theos is a mere 5 minute drive from the airport, yet not in flight path so extremely quiet. Within walking distance you have a couple of bars a local taverna, local shop and a beautiful little restaurant cooking all home grown goods.

Within a 5 minute drive you have a Lidl supermarket and also a local supermarket, although the villa is extremely well stocked on arrival. Argostali is approx a 15-20 minute drive and taxis are very easy to book and reasonable into the islands capital where you have the harbor and an array of restaurants and bars!

I visited for a week with my mother and brother, the villa would be ideal for couples and families a like. It is fully equipped to stay in for the night and have a bbq or head out to a variety of restaurants. It is extremely peaceful sitting by the pool in the day and on the balcony in the evening.

There is a castle and local winery in driving distance, Kefalonia is a beautiful island to explore.

The Villa is a home from home, beautifully decorated and even has the owners own art work adorning the walls.

We will definitely return!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, everything necessary for a brilliant holiday was provided. The outside space was amazing with lots of different seating areas to catch the sun at different times of the day including table & chairs, sun beds & seating in a sheltered area for cooler days. Just a few minutes walk to the village with a couple of tavernas & bars, a bakers, cake shop & mini market. Lovely pool although too cold to use much in May, would be better when it warms up later in the summer.

From the Owner

Villa Theos is set in the beautiful village of Lakithra. You are only a short drive from everything you need from supermarkets, beaches, the main town of Argostoli. The Villa itself has spectacular views down the valley towards Argostoli beach on the one side and Mount Enos and St Georges Castle on the other. The Village of Lakithra is home to the local bakery and has its own cake shop. There are four local restaurants to choose from one of which (En Kefalinia) uses organic produce grown on the premises. Georges bar which is only a five minute walk from the villa serves great cocktails. Argostoli is only a short drive (15 mins) from the villa and has plenty to offer in the way of bars and restaurants. Kefalonia is not a destination for seasoned clubbers, nor will you find high rised hotel complexes on the island. If you want to experience the Greek traditions and culture then Kefalonia will deliver it in spades. From Villa Theos you can drive to Fiscado in less than 2 hours, but well worth the visit as it is picturesque venetian port and one of the few places on Kefalonia not to have been destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. Beaches, caves, vinyards, castles, roman ruins and monestaries are all within a short drive from Lakithra and wherever you decide to go you'll find the journey there as magnificent as the destination. There are some great beaches close by but Avithos beach is a particularly long sandy beach which has two great tavernas and a beach bar. Some of the best local wines are served in the upper of the two tavernas. Our villa manager (Debbie) and our pool cleaner (Keith) are available to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. They have a wealth of local knowledge whether you are looking for something to eat, see or do and many of our guests have been very appreciative.

From the Owner

Villa Theos is a lovely proportioned villa, both bedrooms have en-suites and balcony's from which you can enjoy the spectacular views across the olive groves down to Argostoli. The villa is only a 10 minute drive from the airport which means you can be enjoying your holiday so much more quickly but being in Lakthra also means you don't get any flight disturbance. During your stay you'll almost certainly be treated to the sounds of Greece - the local goat heards being moved from field to field and the musicality of the local church bells. Since buying the property we've added an additional patio area and pergola which provides a lovely alfresco dining area for use throughout the day.
